Al Franken For President!

My Way News:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - He pioneered mock television news 30 years ago and wrote a satirical book about becoming the 44th president of the United States.

So when comedian Al Franken says he is considering a run for U.S. Senate you have to ask -- is he serious?

'The next thing I am doing is moving back home to Minnesota and getting involved in politics,' Franken told Reuters in an interview at his Air America radio studio. 'I'm looking at a run for Senate in 2008, but in the meantime I am focused on knitting together the progressive network in the upper Midwest.'

It sounds serious. Franken is starting a national tour to promote his new book 'The Truth (With Jokes),' which features the usual political satire that has made him a top-selling humor writer.

A New York Times reviewer called it 'an extended stump speech' for his political run.'
I can't wait for this one! Give 'em hell, Al!
